The Labour run council is rapidly bolstering their position, getting very active on the jabberjabber circuit, but unsurprisingly inert when it comes to activity to make Blackpool South a better place in which to live, or more importantly, a better place in which to do business.
According to all the statistics, this region is the most deprived when it comes to health and welfare. The most common cause of premature death in the 13 to 16 year olds IS SUICIDE. Can anyone approach a local councillor and seek comfort from them at a time of emotional turmoil? No need to answer that.

This is in no way a condemnation of the entrepreneur, that valid life blood that can always re-energise an economy through intelligence, hard work and sheer commercial brilliance. Compare that to the status quo of Labour who dare not contemplate truly allowing the next generation to be properly educated for fear that history, that wonderful gluttonous strand that brought Northern Europe out of the caves centuries before the Nomads further South, for the horrendous ruination of the legacy that our Fathers created.

The courses are run on behalf of the Dept of Works and Pensions. Time given by the Ukip members is their own and the fees they pay is out of their own pockets - for the betterment of the whole of the society in Blackpool South.
Having fought the corner for former Service Personnel almost single handed for the past fifteen years, to know what it is like to live on lip service and false promises, it is a pleasure that some Ukip members are broadening their knowledge base and dipping their toes into the maelstrom of Benefits Britain. All the good intentions and hard work by progressive thinking individuals means nothing if obstructed and undermined by the jobsworth in Middle Management whose entire lives are governed by envy and ineptitude.
